You know those days that start out fine, and overall, they are, but one little thing makes the whole day seem horrible?
Today was one of those days.
This family came to the cart and got a ton of stuff and I completely fucked things up. First there was an argument about the price of a necklace, which I lost, because no one tells me before putting up those fucking sale signs, and their little girl kept adding stuff that her dad kept putting back, sometimes before I rang it up, sometimes after, so I had to keep taking stuff off, which is not easy on our piece-of-crap register. In addition, everyone kept changing their minds about whether or not they wanted certain things. At the end, it came to- easily- fifty to a hundred dollars more than it should've been, because so much stuff had been rung up too many times.
That's when Johnny came over and offered to ring them up so they could just get it over with, while I sat there and tried not to think about what a complete spaz I am.
Then when they were gone, he came over and helped me straighten out the register. The boy is a prince, seriously.
So when they close out tonight, we will have 119.50 in Refunds. That was my contribution for the day.
On a seperate note, thanks for the hugs and support. I'm okay now.
